I'm looking for the assassin mid type of champ. I will eventually have both, but that is one kind of void I have right now. I'm looking for someone to play vs. Karthus, Cass, Anivia, and Ahri. I know Kassadin works well, but he's banned so often I don't think I'll be able to play him. I've played Talon before and I just feel he's so situational it's bad. I haven't played Fizz yet, so I'm not sure how he'd do. Just to be clear, I'm asking because I'm saving the 3150 IP for one then it'll be a while before I visit this niche again later for another champ.

So, basically what it's coming down to is, I want to know if it's worth it to pick up one over the other with the bans on Kassadin vs the limited late game of LeBlanc.

Like you said kassadin is almost always banned, so LB.
Also LB has a lot less trouble farming early game.

Kassadin actually is not banned often anymore (stopped months ago), since it's easy to abuse his weak early game
LeBlanc dominates those champions that you mentioned, but in contrast to what the poster above me said, she can have trouble farming early against pushing champions like Cass

Yes Kass is weak for levels 1-5 but if you are careful and can work your way to level 6 without falling too far behind he can absolutely wreck the opposing teams carries. He’s a mid to late game assassin character that will only get stronger as the game goes on. LeBlanc on the other hand is an early game champion that can wreck face early and mid game but will fall off toward the late game. As much as I love Kass LeBlanc is probably better right now. Most games are won or lost before the 20 min mark, before Kass begins to get his stride. Unless you want to try hard for most of your games I would go with LeBlanc.

Kassadin still banned every game at my elo. And poster said he is banned at his. LB = ranged so she has less trouble farming then kassadin, who is melee. If you go againts cass as kass you are pretty much going to be poisoned every time you go in for a last him

^^^^People, LB is great, except very hard to play. You can burst someone with smartcasting in few secs and they say.... Hey it's a le blanc!...... You have been slain........ LOL......

Yeah...But LB has horrible late game imo compared to Kass. Kass can easily go in and assassinate the enemy carry and then rift over a wall like a boss.

Is turret hugging early game a solution to Kassadins early game?
